Mucho, Mucho Amor
50 Years of Walter Mercado
August 2, 2019 - August 25, 2019
Mucho, Mucho Amor: 50 Years of Walter Mercado celebrates the life and career of the beloved Latino astrologer and pop culture icon. For over five decades, Walter Mercado has shared his astrological predictions with style, flair, and mucho, mucho amor.
Raised in the sugar cane fields of Puerto Rico, Mercado grew up to become a gender non-conforming, cape-wearing, psychic astrologer whose televised horoscopes reached 120 million Latino viewers a day for more than 30 years. One of the world’s most famous astrologers, he is a part of the cultural zeitgeist for Latinos and remains a popular figure that transcends generations.
In recognition of the 50th anniversary of Mercado’s first show, HistoryMiami Museum will open an exhibition of his costumes, mementos, and ephemera, on display for the first time ever.
